Question

Redirect HTTP domain A to HTTPS domain B (with lets encrypt cert installed already)

I would like to redirect domain A that is not secure (http) to domain B that is secure (https) that has a let’s encrypt ssl cert already installed. I believe the answer to my question is to utilize the rewrite rules. But, the documentation is a little difficult to understand -for me. Any help, with examples would be awesome.

I figured it out. Thanks.

Thank you for the help!

Unfortunately, did not work. When testing via a browser the error is “domain A’s server DNS address could not be found.”

I assume I need to point domain A to domain B’s IP address for this to work correctly?

Hi @michel92df116ca8bc0546fb67

You can use the following method to redirect by changing your VirtualHost:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName domainA.com
  Alias www.domainA.com
  Redirect / https://www.domainB.com/
</VirtualHost>

And the restart Apache with sudo apachectl restart If everything works, then change it to Redirect permanent / https://www.domainB.com/
